    HTC Mobile VR headset is on the way!

    Hello HTC and VR mobile fans!

    Word has it that HTC plans on releasing a VR mobile headset later this year. As with the Daydream and Gear VR, HTC's VR mobile headset will also utilize the use of a smartphone. This comes from HTC CFO Chia-lin Chang. Chia-lin has also mentioned that HTC has "good plan in terms of combining mobility with VR" and the headset won't simply be "a phone slapped into a headset."

    The interesting part is the quote of him saying it own't simply be "a phone slapped into a headset". Make me wonder if they will release a VR mobile HMD with built-in Snapdragon or Tegra. If so, one thing that comes to mind would be the heat. If they do something with a SoC, hope they find a way to keep us cool

    No details about price at the momment.

    What say you? You think having a VR mobile headset without using your phone would be a cool idea?
